Stay hydrated- water is tough many times as kids prefer the sweet drinks, try taking a pitcher of water and adding their favorite fruit (berries, limes, lemons) and let the fruit sit in the pitcher. The flavor of the fruit will make the water a bit sweet and keep them hydrated with the good stuff.

The staff does have a very hard job trying to educate the kids while also keeping them out of trouble at the same time. Parents are not always the nicest people to communicate with and sometimes they get very angry or are not supportive.
